Multisport Performance Institute (Team MPI) has added USAT Level 1 Coach Jamie Brown to its coaching staff. Brown joins head coaches John Murray and Mark Sortino, as well as coaches Jim Harris, Peter Harsch, Amanda Leibovitz, Allen Stanfield and Dustin Yonke, to provide personalized multisport and run coaching for athletes and paratriathletes across the US.
Brown is based in the Oceanside, California area. He is a member of the USA Paratriathlon National Team as well as the Challenged Athlete Foundation’s (CAF) Elite Paratriathlon Team with many wins to his credit in International Triathlon Union (ITU) racing. He is currently ‘the fastest amputee in ITU’ and is working toward a spot at the 2016 Rio Paralympics.
Prior to his entry into triathlon, Brown was a scholarship athlete, pitching for Chapman University, which culminated in selection for the College Baseball World Series in 2001. He then developed his coaching skills as a high school baseball coach for a decade.
Brown is accepting new athlete clients – including beginners to elite triathletes – who are ready to make gains in the sport. He specializes in sprint, Olympic, 70.3, and XTERRA distances and brings patience, energy and experience to his athletes
MPI President John Murray said, “Coach Jamie draws on his experiences as both a coach and as an athlete both within and outside the sport of triathlon. He worked as a mentor at several paratriathlon camps where we quickly identified his triathlon coaching potential. He has the natural ability to observe, improve, and motivate that cannot be taught.”
